Monday 10 7 19 morning call

An extraordinarily beautiful day of surfing on the north shore yesterday. This is Kai Lenny at Hookipa shot from the water by Jason Hall.

This is the much more flat view from the cliff.

Plenty gorgeous waves on offer pretty much all day. Got much worse at sunset.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore
1.5ft @ 14s from 185° (S)                        
0.7ft @ 18s from 212° (SW)

2.2ft @ 13s from 204° (SSW)
0.9ft @ 18s from 209° (SSW)

Couple of feet 13s and one foot 18s at the buoys, it should be another fun day on the south shore. Yesterday the Lahaina webcam looked good all day, check it out before going.

North shore
6ft @ 11s from 360° (N)

3.4ft @ 11s from 345° (NNW)

3.3ft @ 12s from 343° (NNW)

Fun size numbers at the local buoys, while the NW one jumped up to 6ft 11s from the N. This means that the we can expect an increase in size together with a more northerly direction throughout the day. Wind should be very favorable again.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific has a small W fetch associated with Typhoon Hagibis and a leftover very weak N one out of the low that has made the current swell and at the same time killed the trades.

Nice S fetch in the South Pacific.

Morning sky.
